The Fairmont Beach Club
Situated next to Bermuda’s world-famous Horseshoe Bay Beach, the Fairmont Beach Club is available exclusively for Fairmont guests, featuring a private pink sand beach with chaise lounges, shady palapas, on-site PADI dive center, tennis courts and more. To get there take the complimentary Fairmont Ferry from our private dock for a leisurely 45-minute cruise to The Waterlot Inn, where you’ll catch the complementary Fairmont Trolley to the beach. Once there spend the day relaxing in the sun, rent a kayak or snorkeling equipment from the dive shop or grab a casual beachfront lunch at the Cabana Bar and Grill. Care to explore the South Shore? Enter Horseshoe Bay Beach through the nearby entrance gate and walk the beach dune path through Stonehole and Chaplin Bays, onto Jobson’s Cove then ending at stunning Long Bay. When you’re done, head back to the beach club where you’ll catch the trolley and ferry returning to The Fairmont Hamilton Princess.
Explore Town of St. George’s
Once Bermuda’s capital city, St. George’s was founded in 1609 and is now a UNESCO world heritage site filled with charming colonial architecture and ambling labyrinth alleyways. To get there, take the public bus from the City of Hamilton (the station is just a ten-minute walk from the hotel) and head east. During your one-hour ride, you’ll pass numerous bays and charming island cottages until you reach Bermuda’s historic town filled with 17th century National Trust properties. Once in St. George’s don’t miss St. Peter’s Church—the oldest Anglican church in the Western Hemisphere—in addition to King’s Square complete with historic Town Hall. Travelers searching for authentic Bermudiana should stop by the Bermuda Perfumery for handmade island scents; the Book Cellar specializing in architectural, historical and cultural books about the island; and the English Sports shop for a pair of Bermuda shorts in all colors of the rainbow.
